Minty Tangy Watermelon Juice

Watermelon juice is everyone's favourite. But what about a tangy and minty watermelon juice ??  Its so simple, as the name suggests add some mint leaves and squeeze some fresh lime juice... that's it !! Watermelons are a good source of Vitamin A and C, also best thing is it has almost no fat and we can have them in plenty.Mint has many medicinal properties and helps in digestion. As you all know, lime helps in maintaining a good health. So the trio is a great combination, a wonderful thirst quencher and healthy refreshing drink too..

My little one doesn't like watermelon. So I was very surprised when he drank this juice yesterday and happy that he liked it a lot!!  Beat the heat with this wonderful summer cooler :)


Ingredients:

3-4 cups of Watermelon, deseeded and chopped into cubes 
1/2 of a lime
7-8 Mint leaves
Sugar/Honey to taste

Put the watermelon cubes and mint leaves in the blender. Squeeze the lime into this. Blend until all the watermelon pieces have crushed. Strain if you desire. Add sugar or honey as per your taste. Serve chilled. 




Enjoy this refreshing drink !!
